The unite Commander assigns a Unit Program Account Manager (UPAM) using the UPAM appointment letter. Request accounts in the following Domains: GDSS and Classified GDSS.

Additionally, A DD Form 2875 is needed for each user account. Complete the form using AMS Checklist B-01 (attached). Coordinate the package as explained in the letter package and return as explained in checklist B-01.
